“I had heard that song my whole life but when you actually sing it and interpret it . . . I didn’t realize,” she told Radio.com. “For me, it had a sad meaning. The original version is a little more angry and intense. When I was singing it I just felt that it was really sad. These people had been together a long time. That song surprised me with the emotion when I sang it.”
Now, in a new video for the song, McBride transforms the 1972 angst-ridden classic into a tearful bedroom lament.
McBride said the decision to cut pop and soul songs for her latest release came from her 2005 album, Timeless.
